Black and White Farm Table

Here's what I have been working on lately. I put a lot of sweat into this table. The top originally had a ton of peeling veneer. It took a lot of soaking, heating, and scraping to get it all off.

I fell in love with this table because of the unique and beautiful legs. I painted the base white to really show off their beauty.

The base in painted in Old white Chalk Paint and the chairs in graphite. I recovered the seats in black and white ticking and covered them in a plastic vinyl for protection. I have a kid, I know that the material wouldn't last one meal in my home without being ruined:)

The top has some splitting but I find it adds character. I used annie sloan dark wax to stain the top, it filled in all the knicks and dings and gave the top a real time worn appearance. I will be staining wood with dark wax  more often. It's all great for protection and waterproofing.

It is for sale ($250 just contact me at


  1. I love the contrast of the wood top with the Old White paint. It's beautiful and I'm with you on the little cracks adding character!
